HDR is ready for a Renaissance - and you can be it's da Vinci!

Now that's a much better laid trap.

Anyway, another thing I think about with my work is that I have my own style. It's not neccessarily Dragan by any means; but it is my own style. And frankly I don't want people trying to emulate it. Also, for the most part, when I get so many insults from people who have hurt feelings over a forum they think they partially own or somehing, I really just don't think they deserve to see my work.

I used to share a bit here, long ago. But the thing I wish to avoid is being part of the army of clones. Everyone here thinks shallow depth of field is so amazing, and the bokeh is so beautiful; and I don't agree at all. But I do know that I have actually made a couple of people cry just from looking at my stuff, and maybe that's because it's so different from anything that's others are doing.

I'm not a clone. I'm not a follower. That's why you won't ever see my work. Because once it's out there, then everyone will want to do it. IT'S THE NEW HDR!!! LOok at this guy's work!

And then it's not MY work anymore. I've just collected all the clones to follow me.

So no thanks.

I was right, II.

So you're an HDR enthusiast, and your HDR work wasn't universally praised, or seen as the groundbreaking, original stuff you were sure it was. This hurt your feelings. Thus, threads like this, or rudely-given CC dropped in here or there...

Look - post some more shots. Really. HDR has died down a bit around here of late, maybe you can bring it back.

Here are a few of my favorite things...
